• To create a clear arena of debate on the role of Asian Urban Epicenters in the globalized world;
• To establish a network of collaboration among people interested in this subject both inside NUS/SDE and outside (individuals and institutions);
• To identify and accumulate the knowledge of relevant practices and projects in this field;
